Kelly G Rogers: A Convicted Felon

Kelly Gordon Rogers in Jail. Rogers was processed and spent the night in jail. His new mugshot is a permanent feature of this blog (look on the right). Thanks to our highly educated readers, we now know he was convicted on case 380-81036-2012 "Theft of Stolen Property" and will face his penalty on Tuesday, May 27th at 9:00 am. We also know the other charges will sorted out either by way of a plea bargain, OR the State will go to trial on each individual charge. That's up to Rogers on Tuesday. Either way, he's going away for a long time. Several victims will make appearances in court to speak to the bad character of Kelly Rogers before sentencing. Please, someone MUST be in that courtroom to take notes for the readers. Again, thanks to a reader;

"Just an update on Kelly Rogers current accommodations. Since the jury came back in light speed with a conviction and it being a holiday weekend, Rogers spent the night in a plastic chair in the 'book in'. He will stay in the 'book in' according to the sheriff's department, at least until this evening. If he had been convicted on a regular business day, he would have spent the night in jail and then immediately brought to Court the next morning. However, since the jury had enough time to file out and go into the deliberation room, pull their chairs out, vote GUILTY, push their chairs back in, file back into the courtroom and render their verdict early Friday, Rogers gets to stay in 'book in for an inordinate amount of time. How fitting. I also noticed in the jail records, Rogers still lists the house at 18 Stonebriar Way as his residence. I'm sure this will be made very clear to the jury by the State amongst the plethora of other matters that the State will present in the punishment phase. The utter audacity of both Kelly and Carrie Rogers to continue the facade on other people's hard earned money is utterly astounding to me. I also noticed on Rogers visitation list he put Fred Sewell. Is Fred that delusional? Carrie will blame it on everyone else and the "plot" to destroy her family, when in reality she was just as culpable and complicit as Kelly Rogers in these fraudulent transactions".

"Just to add some clarification on the case information. Rogers was convicted of one of the indictments. What will more than likely happen is that when Rogers is given a significant sentence then the State will either offer to plea the others and run the sentences concurrently. If Rogers elects to be indignant and try the other six cases, then the State would try them and "stack" them or run them consecutively. If Rogers received a sentence of 10 years, (highly, highly unlikely) then he could post appeal bonds on the sentence. However that is not likely to happen since the State would have six more chances for a large sentence and also the extraneous offenses. So on Tuesday when Rogers receives an enormous sentence of over 50 years or more (as I suspect) then he will either plea the other 6 out or remain indignant and force the State to try the others. Either way, Rogers is cooked and maybe reality finally set in that it is OVER!!"

"If you look at the past convictions of The State Securities Board prosecuting through the Collin County District Attorney's Office, those who went to trial ( Karen Bowie, William Seelye and others) all were given 80 years to life on the first conviction, first charge. This charge carries 5 to 99 and when the State really let's loose in the punishment phase and adds the extraneous charges, Rogers will get a minimum of 50, guaranteed. Add the fact (unlike the other crooks) he at the time was a lawyer and Rogers' sentence will surpass the others. And if he pushes it, Rogers will come out with more than likely hundreds of years in consecutive sentences. If Rogers thinks in his warped mind that he will fair better on appeal, that will never happen. The 5th District in Dallas doesn't overturn convictions. What is a guarantee is that somewhere down the road, Rogers will blame this on his current attorney's and argue ineffective assistance of counsel, which will not work either. Rogers doesn't have a play anymore, this part is over,. Justice was served in the penal system, the investors, friends and others he financially raped will still never be made whole. At least Rogers' is in the process of getting what he deserved. You know what they say about KARMA!"
